Ice Walking Winter Outdoor Activities

The deep stillness at the bottom of the frozen canyon is broken only by the sound of boots crunching in the snow. Towering waterfalls plunge down steep rock walls, frozen in place as if frozen in time. Wander through a maze of colossal pillars of ice and surreal sculptures, backlit in blues and greens. The winter canyons of the Canadian Rockies have to be seen to be believed. Professional Alberta guides provide everything you need – ice cleats, walking poles, beverages and snacks.
